Welcome To A Different Kind of Pole Studio
The Believe Pole Program was founded on the idea that there is a pole dancer inside of all of us regardless of age, size, or fitness level. We believe that with the right instruction, even the klutzy, the dorky and the uncoordinated can find their voice and style through pole and fitness and truly become a pole artist in their own right. Thousands of men and women have experienced our magic over the last 12 years and have helped us build one of the most recognized and established studios in California.
From the moment you walk into the studio, you're home. From the friendly faces that greet you to the exquisitely decorated lobby and studios, you can feel and sink into the inviting decadent atmosphere. Enthusiastic, friendly teachers will show you how easy and fun it can be to learn to dance in a place free from judgment or competitiveness.

"I started pole in my mid-50’s. I figured I would be the oldest woman in class and that it would be weird. I was the oldest woman in class, and it was wonderful! When you’re starting, everyone, at every age, is a beginner. And in the super-supportive, empowering environment of pole class, you all get stronger and more capable and more confident together. It is the best thing I ever did to look and feel younger!
